Product description

How identity politics failed one particular identity.

'The whole book is just brilliant - and very much needed.' SIMON SCHAMA

'Such a good, important and essential book. SIMON SEBAG MONTEFIORE

'Funny, complex and intellectually satisfying - a really good piece of work'

Jews Don't Count is a book for people who consider themselves on the right side of history. People fighting the good fight against homophobia, disablism, transphobia and, particularly, racism. People, possibly, like you.
It is the comedian and writer David Baddiel's contention that one type of racism has been left out of this fight. In his unique combination of close reasoning, polemic, personal experience and jokes, Baddiel argues that those who think of themselves as on the right side of history have often ignored the history of anti-Semitism. He outlines why and how, in a time of intensely heightened awareness of minorities, Jews don't count as a real minority: and why they should.
